The Cisco SN 5420, SN 5428, and Cisco SN Family of storage routers continue to be the industry's leading products that implement the Internet Small Computer Systems Interface (iSCSI) standard. As with all Cisco products, there will be continued improvements to the product based on both internal and customer testing. This product bulletin announces the new release of the Cisco Storage Networking iSCSI Driver Version 2.1.2 for AIX 4.3.3.
